Replace 2005 Cadillac CTS water pump
\015 I need to replace the water pump in my 3.6 L 2005 Cadillac CTS. How do I do this? I'm pretty good with a wrench, but haven't done this job before.\015
Drain the coolant.remove belt by rotating belt tensioner cllockwise. water pump pulley will require a holding tool to keep it from turning while removing bolts. access to air ratchet can sometimes eliminate the need to hold but be careful cause thats a good way to skin some knuckles. also make installation more difficult to obtain proper torque. after pulley is off just a few water pupm mounting bolts remain. clean and dry gasket surface very well before reinstalling.
